Re: Garmin Blue Chart Mobile apps - hate to buy charts again

I am still new to the app. I bought it to use for planning. I already have a backup CP but it may be nice to have in the cockpit to keep an eye on when I am off to the side of the primary CP. Of course you need the ipad with the GPS in it(cellular version). I think there may also be an aftermarket GPS you can connect to the charging port.

If you have wifi enabled NMEA 2000 network and a 4000 or higher CP, you can send waypoints and routes to your CP via wireless.
